Peralta Man Killed in Semi-Truck Collision
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 22-Dec-2011
A Martin County 18 wheeler accident left one man dead, Wednesday morning, when he lost control of his pickup truck and collided with the big rig.
Peralta resident, 36-year-old Patricio Peralta, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident on TX 349. According to police, Peralta’s truck was traveling northbound, when it veered into the opposite lane, smashing into a semi-truck head on.
Although the driver of the semi-truck, Felipe Arriaga, was not injured in the tractor trailer truck accident, the second trailer he was towing flipped as a result of the wreck.
While Peralta lost control, crashing into the semi-truck, police are unsure what caused him to veer into the southbound lane of traffic, causing the fatal accident.
